Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. (You may also be offered a phone call, but those don’t come from me and are offered by the website and you are under no obligation to accept.)

That depends on the situation. Even if the road is private, a police officer can enforce driving laws if the private road is are accessible and frequented by the public at large. However:

-a sign is not enforceable by a private party;

-a sign is not enforceable by a police officer if the sign itself was placed there by a private citizen; and

-the final decision is that of the Court, of course.
